Stopping a vehicle requires a hydraulic braking system that creates resistance at the wheels. This is ultimately a safety system that needs to be at its best, but unfortunately, is susceptible to wear and tear that threatens optimal performance. Brake system maintenance keeps the essential components at their best to support powerful braking at factory specifications when you need it most.
Routine brake system inspections are needed at the intervals detailed in the owner’s manual or sooner if braking problems develop regardless of the miles. We have certified technicians with extensive experience working on Volkswagen brakes just like yours. We will evaluate overall braking performance, including inspecting the brake pads, rotors, hardware, calipers, lines, and fluid.
Brake pads generate resistance when clamped against wheel rotors. Brake pads need replacement service when they are worn to 3mm or .1in. We provide front, rear, and all brake pad replacement services as needed.
Wheel rotors have a flat disc for maximum surface area and resistance. Rotors develop cracks, grooves, and warping contingent upon driving conditions and the severity of use. Rotors with minor defects are resurfaced to restore the flat disc. Rotors with excessive defects or any warping require replacement.
Hydraulic brake fluid transfers stopping force from the master cylinder pump into the calipers that press the brake pads into the wheel rotors. Brake fluid absorbs water that compromises its hydraulic property. Brake fluid requires exchange service at the recommended miles or sooner if it loses integrity.
Customers can schedule a brake service appointment conveniently online or by phone during normal hours. We operate extended weekday and Saturday service hours. We have home/office pick-up and delivery, rental cars, Uber/Lyft services, and courtesy loaners available for customers that need transportation. You can relax in the comfortable waiting area while we complete the service.
